Three Cat® Products Named “All-Stars” by China Construction Professionals

“All-Star Products.” That’s the honor construction industry customers and experts in China gave to three Cat® machines at the 2014 Internet Conference and Brand Event Awards Ceremony for the China Construction Machinery Industry Association (CMIIC).

The Cat 336D2 hydraulic excavator and M317D2 wheel excavator were named 2014 Star Excavators, with users citing the machines’ fuel efficiency, low operating costs, and overall reliability and durability. The 950 GC wheel loader won the 2014 Star Carry-Scraper Machinery Award on the strength of its fuel consumption, efficiency, safety and comfort features, and ease of maintenance.

All three Cat machines were named 2014 Star Products for receiving the most online and offline votes in the competition, which was hosted by HC360, a leading business-to-business e-commerce service provider, and guided by the China Construction Machinery Association.

The CMIIC officially launched in June, and Caterpillar submitted several machines for consideration. The first phase of voting consisted of four months of intense competition and resulted in more than 1.32 million online votes and 40,000 offline questionnaires. Industry experts also submitted votes for the top products. The awards were presented on November 24, 2014.
